Ubi Franklin and Iyanya

On Tuesday March 19, popular Nigerian music journalist Joey Akan published an exclusive story on Native, an online magazine.

The first of the 3-part story published on Tuesday, sheds light on the ongoing rift between popular Nigerian musician, Iyanya and Ubi Franklin, both the founders of Made Men Music Group (MMMG) popularly called TripleMG. Read it below.

The following two parts tell the story from the angle of both parties, highlighted in an unedited interview. Spoiler Alert: Part 2 which is Iyanya's interview is in 99% pidgin. Brace yourself.


If you're still not convinced that you need to commit time to the story, read some snippets below.

Vic O, Nigerian controversial artiste and self-proclaimed "best rapper in the world" made an important announcement on Twitter two days ago. He will be releasing a new single titled Bella this month. But that's not the important part of the announcement.

Get this, Vic O will feature Speed Darlington, another controversial artiste.

This is a big deal because beyond the social media hype, both artistes individually make "not so great" music (their confidence is what creates the hype by the way). Together, on Bella, we expect nothing short of shocking.


Banger alert!

"God safe us"

Koffi Olomide's rape case

Popular Congolese musician Koffi Olomide was on Monday handed a two-year suspended prison sentence by a court in France for the statutory rape of one of his former dancers when she was 15.

The singer reportedly received the sentence in absentia as he failed to show up. He was also accused of assaulting four of his former dancers multiple times between 2002 and 2006.

"The women further alleged they were held captive in a villa outside Paris and escaped one night in June 2006, but did not return home to DR Congo for fear of reprisal," reads a BBC article.

Trouble in Camp #OurMumuDonDo

It all started last week when Deji Adeyanju, Nigerian activist, convener of Concerned Nigerians and member of the #OurMumuDonDo movement announced his resignation from the group. See tweet below.

This week, an audio recording of Charly Boy, the leader of the #OurMumuDonDo movement admitting to collecting money from Festus Keyamo -- Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council -- for a song he made was reportedly leaked.

Apparently, the song paints Atiku Abubukar, the People's Democratic Party's presidential candidate in a bad light.

According to Deji...
